How do I get the most out of my pan tilt zoom (PTZ) camera?
A great 360 degree pan view with tilt and zoom functions gives you excellent coverage from the Swann NHS-817 camera. Designed for flexibility with its full 360 degree pan and 10 times zoom you can get a great view through any position. With a viewing angle between 28-91 degrees and clear HD 1080p or 3MP resolution and aluminium dome, the NHD-817 is the perfect addition to any security solution for shops or homes. Real time monitoring also allows you to really make the most of the zoom function to focus in on specific areas of interest.. To give you the best possible picture the camera switches to black and white in low light conditions to improve the clarity of the image and gives you night vision of up to 50m.

How simple is the camera to set up?
This camera can only be used in combination with Swann’s 1080p and 3 megapixel Network Video Recorders including NVR4-7200, NVR8-7200, NVR4-7300 and NVR8-7300. The NHD-817 is plug and play with no need for complicated set up. Installing is also simple and easy - the box contains 30m Ethernet cable as well as screws and fixings. Using a NVR you can keep an eye on your camera through your smartphone on a compatible app. Some apps will even let you move the camera via your phone. Using a compatible NVR you can programme the zoom, tilt and pan to change at specific times or positions.

Where should I put my PTZ camera?
With its built in side mounting bracket the Swann NHD-817 is ideal to set up on the corner of your property or attached to a broad post in the middle of a carpark. To take advantage of the 360 degree pan, place the camera where it has the most available open space surrounding it. The tilt allows the camera to move to see anything underneath it. The NHD-817 can be used indoors or outdoors with its weather resistant IP66 rating.

I'm planning to link the NHD-817 to a NVR8-7300 Network Video Recorder. The NRV will be linked to a BT HomeHub by cable. Is it possible to then use a PC wirelessly as a monitor and control for the camera via the home network.

Asked by: Jack
You can connect to the NVR over network on a PC and use the NVR and cameras via the SwannviewLink software. The software is very comprehensive and allows you to do just about everything over a network connection that you can do whilst operating the actual NVR. Live view, Playback of archive footage, and all configuration modification.

Why would this not work at 3mp on my NVR87285 ? It's a 3mp nvr recorder ? What would I have to reduce the mp setting ? Can you pan tilt and zoom remotely via Android app ?

Asked by: scott
Sorry but the Swann 8-7285 is not a 3MP recorder, it's maximum recording resolution is 1080p. The camera will work on the 8-7285 but only if you set the recording encode resolution to 1080p.

Would this work on my NVR 87285 ?

Asked by: scott
Yes but not at the 3MP setting you would have to drop the quality.

Before buying when in store I spoke to an assistant who assured me the camera would work without a DVR i.e. PC running iSpy to record. There's no instructions for the default IP or subnet the camera is on or credentials, please advise where I can get them

Asked by: donny_anon
The unit is designed to be connected to a SWANN NVR unit. You could connect the device directly to a router, the router would assign the device an IP via DHCP control, the subnet mask would be that of the router. Even if you achieved a connect with the camera I don't see how you will be able to send the slew commands to the camera for movement.

just bought 2 of these. Your details say 12v and no mention of a power adaptor being supplied, in the box is a 48v power adaptor. Can this camera get Power over ethernet with a 7285 NVR?

Asked by: Rew1
The item has to use the power adapter provided.

what height should the Swan NHD817 be installed at ?

Asked by: mick
This would depend on your needs, for example what field of view you would need from the camera and what you are using the camera to view.
